Live OneCare installation activation code RRS feed

  • Question

  • Purchase a retail version at Staples.  I needed to open the box, cut the UPC and send in for a rebate.  I kept what I thought I needed; the "getting Started" booklet and the multicolor label from the top of the box.  I discarded the rest of the contents.  Few days later, loading the OneCare, it asks for the activation code.  The multicolor label does not have anything that looks like a 12 or 25 digit code.  What can I do?

  • Unfortunately, if you disposed of the retail CD case, you have disposed of the key you need to activate the subscription with. It is located on a yellow/orange sticker on the back of the CD tray.
